An injury and a revenge game, a rough week for two former Bison quarterbacks

What a range of emotions is has to be for the two former Bison quarterbacks that are in the NFL this week.

Trey Lance had his season end Sunday when his right ankle was trapped underneath a pile of Seahawks, breaking it.

Lance left on a cart and his hopes of taking the 49ers back to the playoffs ended.

Questions continue to rise about the former NDSU star after a slow start in Chicago and now this injury, with Jimmy Garappolo back under center, what does the future hold for Lance in San Francisco?

Meanwhile, Carson Wentz has a reunion this weekend.

Wentz on his third team in Washington, faces Philadelphia, the team that traded away five draft picks to get him and face the guy Jalen Hurts, who just diced up the Vikings, who replaced him.

The city of Philadelphia certainly doesn't miss Wentz by evidence of the signs around town.

Wentz has thrown 7 touchdowns to 3 interceptions so far this year, but it has to be impossible for him to wonder how did things go so wrong so quickly with the Eagles?

Now he's on the opposing sidelines, on his third team, hoping this is the place where he can stick.

Pro football is a cruel game and the two former Bison quarterbacks can tell you just how tough the game is.
